Decorating your master bedroom is probably more fun than decorating any other room in your home! Why? Because it’s the one room in your home that you can truly allow your personality to shine! Remember, this is your space, and you deserve the best!
And, as with every decorating project, first things first! It’s important to develop a decorating plan that fits your needs, your lifestyle and most importantly your pocketbook!
Consider taking these three simple and easy steps!
Step #1: Begin your project by visualizing, and then listing, all the types of activities you’ll want to conduct in your “get-away” haven. Perhaps it’s writing thought-provoking entries in your daily journal; reading your favorite books; knitting; needlework; watching old romantic movies on your TV/DVD player; daily meditation; contemplating your plans for the next day - whatever the activity, think through what types of things will make you the happiest in your new master bedroom retreat.
Step #2: Look at your bedroom space with a “critical” eye. Ask yourself, can your bedroom, with your given amount of space, accommodate all of the activities you listed. While the answer is usually yes, you may still need to take advantage of some clever pre-planning.
Step #3: Think about “coloring your world” – especially your soon to be redesigned master bedroom. As with most all decorating projects, one of your first priorities is locking in a color scheme. Color sets the stage and provides harmony to everything else that will eventually find its way into your new bedroom. It’s the backdrop that surrounds all of your furnishings, fabrics and accessories, lighting – EVERYTHING!
